This is the first import of groupage we have done via your company from the Hassleholm area of Sweden. Your service has been impeccable and your customer services are superb. We have dealt with many a freight forwarder/shipping company who have never given us accurate/precise information. Instead they have told us your goods maybe or should be delivered soon!. Whereas your Import Department gave us clear facts in relation to the shipping date, arrival date and delivery date both verbally and by email. We pride ourselves on our service when we sell our products to our clients and it is great to deal with a like minded company who pride themselves on the same values as us. We import candies for shows and exhibitions and it is important to both us and our clients that the stock is made available to us on our required delivery dates, else our (our clients) stands would be empty!. It is great that you have kept me fully informed and assured of when we receive our goods. It's nice to know that you understand the fuller picture and the knock on effect for importers when goods are not delivered on time. Next year our import traffic will have increased considerably and we shall be using your groupage services from Sweden. We have full confidence in you, thankyou for being so helpful.

Soaring Freight Costs Will squeeze profits

Tags: ,


It’s getting more expensive to ship commodities around the world, threatening to squeeze profits for global traders and raise food prices.

The Baltic Dry Index, which published current shipping rates, surged 73 percent in 2017 to a four-year high because of a slowdown in new bulk freight capacity. More than 85 percent of global exports and imports in grains and oilseeds is transported by dry-bulk carriers, according to Rabobank International.

Higher shipping costs will make agricultural products from farther away less competitive, and could push up food prices, the bank said in a report last week.The United Nations’ Food & Agriculture Organization expects the world food bill to be the second-highest on record this year, driven by higher freight and rising demand for foodstuffs.
